Okay Dawg fans, this one should provide mega-joke fuel.
It seems that Nick Saban felt the call of nature while in the public sphere during SEC media days. St. Nick can not be expected to relieve himself amongst the proletariat. Therefore, a public restroom was commandeered. Media and members of the public were forced to wait while Mr. Saban finished his business.
The line for the bathroom was a couple deep outside and growing a little impatient. Inside? Nick Saban.
Media members couldn't enter the bathroom at SEC Media Days while Saban relieved himself, accompanied inside by Alabama coordinator of athletic relations Cedric Burns.
"Hope he hurries up," one photographer said, waiting in a short line blocked by two security officials. "I've got to go."
